    Oh, okay. Just read about the Swiss band from the 00s in the bio. Never heard of them though. And it looks like nobody is listening to them either. Less than people do to the original Tubes even. ;)

    70s and 80s Tubes sound so fundamentally different though that one might think that they're two bands. So I'm not that surprised when someone thinks that there are two bands out there which share the same name.

    At first... didn't take them seriously, but then realize that half of their stuff revolves around satire, I realized just how amazing they really are. Really interesting.

    I saw these guys live in 1978 (before the She's a Beauty sellout) and they were absolutely amazing. So outrageous... it's really too bad they decided to become a crappy pop band.

    I saw them play on the She's a Beauty tour - Lots of fun, and at the time one of the best show's I'd ever seen.

    This is a great band, and my first cassette with the Tubes was Outside/Inside so I've known that band for quite a long time I guess I could say. But I had never seen them until last summer (2009) at some huge Rock Festival in Sweden. And in a matter of fact I didn' t have on hand the program so I didn't had a clue what band was starting to play on one of the 4 various sages until I asked some guy who was video filming them. And the guy looke strangly at me and said "Hey man these are The TUBES! Wooo I said. Maybe simply because I hadn't see their stage act before. But they were fun and geat.

    Yeah, having heard White Punks On Dope back in the mid 70's, I got hooked with Remote Control... (Prime Time, TV Is King etc)...I picked up the CD compilation White Punks On Dope (on Spectrum in the UK) about 2 years back and it is most excellent... all the best stuff from their spell on A&M is there... though nothing from their time with Capitol. Great band... Talk to Ya Later is one of those underrated rock radio classics. Sweet!

    This is one of my favorite bands. I first heard them in the early 1980s, when I attended a university. I have not seen them in concert.

    I saw these guys performing at the Sweden Rock Festival I wasn't even aware of it that these guys were the Tubes! And at the beguinning of there show I though the lead singer was some kind of a freak (lol) But the more I watched and listened I reolised that that was just part of the show. I actually really enjoyed there humor and the jokes that Mr. Waybill was performing. Thanks a lot for your act.

    By the way, I'm looking for a The Tubes songbook that was released in the 80's. If anyone has this book, or knows anything about it, please leave me a message. I'm desperately trying to find it.

    Saw them Yesterday.. Going to AC/DC soon, don't think they will be able to top the Tubes.

    first real gig i ever visited was one of theirs! right before the stones. the tubes actually gave a way better show than the stones. it was just a totally different atmosphere and everything.

    Fantastic band. You must see them live, if you can (even in their current line-up). The ultimate live band experience, imo.

    USAXD, I think you mean 33 1/3, the standard revolutions per minute (RPM) for long play (LP) albums. As for me, my Tubes collection is limited to "The Tubes", "Young and Rich", and "What Do You Want From Live", all on vinyl and all very good early works.

    October 2008

    I have Remote Control on vinyl...... 33 1/2 !!!!!! Excellent album!!!!

    Funny that former cast-member Michael Holman went on to be the man who popularized Breakdancing in the early-to-mid '80s.
